When will amd64 be allowed in sid?

When is amd64 going to be allowed to go into sid? It has been more or
less ready to go into sid since mid Feb and seems to be primarily
blocked on the fact that it is not an official Debian port yet. If it is
simply an issue of mirror space then why isn't one of the many unused
archs dropped, or preferrably the rsync script modified? As can be seen
by popcon almost all users use i386 currently. By the end of 2005 nearly
all new desktops will be based on amd64.[1] Which very likely will be
before sarge+1 is released... Also, debian-installer already works on
amd64 as I understand it. If amd64 was allowed into sid it would
probably not take too terribly long before it would be ready for release
with sarge.
